3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 33cl. It pours a hazy amber beer with an average sized, nicely lasting creamy light beige head. The aroma is mainly of lime peel, pineapple, lemongrass, cookie dough and caramel. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Smooth palate. Peppery. Nice malt back. Balanced. Beautiful lacework. Dry finish which is reminiscent of caramel, faint raisin, lime, pineapple and fresh cut grass. Interesting and delicious.

Bright amber color, hazy, with compact head. Mild aroma of malt, with light earthy impression, light apples. Smooth mouthfeel; some malt flavor, with correct bitterness, some hop resins; it seems a bit sweeter than other beers of the series.
A good beer, quite clean, unfortunately too old, apparently.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Very nice head retention. Fantastic aroma - lychee, mandarine and white grapes, coupled with spicy and grassy notes, over a caramelly malty base. The wonderful mouthfeel is full, thick, creamy and smooth. Sweet taste with a moderate bitterness. Tropical hoppy flavour, leaving enough room for the malt to show up. Terrific!
